What's New in Version 2.2.0
• Greatly improves Chromecast experience
I've spent more on 25¢ gum balls over the course of my life than HBO spent on creating, maintaining, and debugging this app. Crashes constantly. There are several recurring bugs including the app closes itself mid-show and you cannot resume, rewind, or fast forward from your watching point, once you've started a show there's no visible time bar or pause button so don't go pee or miss one second of your show because you can't pause rewind or fast forward, the search results are a complete waste of time showing literally 10% of the content that is supposed to be available for HBO NOW customers. And, boy, their featured content suggestions are really rammed down your cake hole. No! I don't want to freaking watch Little freaking Big Lies!!! Am I rambling? Good. Now you have some idea of how slow the app behaves and responds. Love you HBO. Hate this app.
Content is great, app is trash
1. Clicking a movie automatically plays, doesn't give a description, would be nice to discover things....nope unless you know what it is you're out of luck
2. Chromecast...can't scrub after you've started the video, close the menu, reopen (which is literally anytime you would want to scrub, e.g. Rewind)
3. Chromecast again...when you do get the ability to scrub, 80% of the time it hangs and disconnects you...I think due to this bug is why they've purposefully enacted the horrible user interaction of #2
4. There's no chainplay...are you kidding me? What year is this? If you're watching an older show you literally have to go search again for the show and manually hunt down the next episode after each one.
5. Watchlist is useless...who wants to put individual episodes in a watchlist one by one? And new one's don't get added automatically.
2.2.0 ver. Update
"Greatly improves Chromecast experience"
Still no chainplay, still no scrubbing after you dismiss the initial screen...what's greatly improved? Looks just like a new screen for same crappy old behavior. Maybe they've resolved the issue where 80% of the time it would crash on that initial scrub...haven't had to use yet.
I'm really surprised a big company like HBO (or whoever owns it), can't make an app without all the glitches. Once you get the show going it's fine, but don't pause for any more than a minute or it will come up with an error message and make you close and reopen the app.
The forward/rewind functionality is also just horrible. It's really hard to pinpoint if its going fast or slow, so I find have to go back and forth several times before I can get it to where I wanted. And even then chances of an error message are fairly good and I have to close and reopen.
I'm using the Xbox One app. So maybe it's issues with that particular platform. Though based on the average review rating here it looks like I'm not the only one that has issues.
